  • 1. virtual pizza is not enough On Focus Groups, Affinities, Data, Outreach, and Core Competencies for Information Professionals and others in Open Source
  • 2. who am I?

  • 6. Source: tumblr
  • 7. what is OPW? The Outreach Program for Women (OPW) helps women (cis and trans) and genderqueer get involved in free and open source software. We provide a supportive community for beginning to contribute any time throughout the year and offer focused internship opportunities twice a year with a number of free software organizations.
  • 8. The one thing I think most librarians can agree on (which is why we’re a good bunch to reach out to!): Information should be free, it should be open, and it should be limitless.
  • 9. what did I want to do for this internship? • Create and run a focus group for information professionals • Fix the CBT wiki and make it pretty • Explore badging as an option for information professionals • Crowdsource badges metadata • Badge information professionals
  • 10. what did I do? • Updated the CBT wiki and made it pretty – Joined a wiki wiki working group • Ran a focus group – More on that later • Wrote the CBT Pathways Roadmap for this year • Drove the CBT reading group • Co-blogged with Ake, Mozillarian (my blog: http://www.jennierosehalperin.me) • Webmaker makes • Localized new Get Involved survey • Sorted through tons of data and emails • and LOTS more…
  • 11. the really great thing about Mozilla is…..
  • 12. I also met and worked with the best people. Larissa David Dino Christie Pierros Michelle William Q. William R. Gemma Emily Michelle Sean B. Janet Nukeador Madalina Kadir
  • 13. and SO MANY MORE including…
  • 14. ALL THE MOZILLIANS EVERYWHERE!!!
  • 15. let’s talk about Focus Groups
  • 16. “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.” Samuel Beckett
  • 17. ever tried… • 3 sessions: • Exploring competencies • Finding pathways • Continuing Involvement • Call for participation exploded! • Twitter • Blogs (tumblr: tumblrians! tumblarians! tumblrarian!) • Facebook • 22 people answered and sent bios
  • 18. Source: tumblr
  • 19. ever failed… • 12 people answered poll for meeting time • Session 1: 7 participants • Session 2: 3 participants • Session 3: 2 participants • Number of return participants: 2 • Number of participants who participated in all three sessions: 0

  • 21. what went wrong? • 3 sessions is a lot of sessions • Lack of clear benefit and reward (Virtual pizza is not enough!) • Qualitative interviews are not efficient
  • 22. Source: Hey Girl Librarian
  • 23. no matter… • Information professionals are good at: – Spreadsheets! – Metadata! – Community building! – Encouraging critical literacies! – Working within their means (using only sources that are free and available or working within a particular budget. Figure out a way to make it work!)
  • 24. – Helpfulness! – Search, (Ontologies, Vocabularies, Thesaurus Building)! – Databases! – Creating online search strategies! – Maintaining and developing free public spaces, online and offline! – Creating intranets and organizing internal information! – Building Social Networks! – Honest and Open communication! – Simplying the complicated!
  • 25. how do we harness all these amazing skills?
  • 26. Source: Queens Library
  • 27. try again… • Lessons learned: – We love IRL interaction – We have to get out of the vendor training model – Collaboration with existing structures – Techy librarians as “defacto experts” – Recognition is key – Time (is not) on our side – Demystifying contribution – Partnerships, partnerships!
  • 28. “When you assume, you make an ass out of u and me” -Felix Unger, the Odd Couple
  • 29. fail better… • Data and surveys: – Stewards survey – Get Involved Survey • Creative ways to get feedback! – After event polling – Silent etherpadding – One-on-one interviews • Mozillarians, all of us!

  • 31. so now what? • Partnering with libraries and schools… – Badges for information professionals – Software Carpentry – Infiltrating MLS’s – Webmaker – Maker parties – Mentorship – Library Camps! no need to reinvent… remix!
  • 32. "I thought being a librarian was going to be about reading stories, reader’s advisory, and helping people. Instead it’s hearing depressing stories from patrons, dealing with government bureaucracy, and a pointless MLIS degree. I’m still in school and I already want to give up but I’ve spent too much money to just back out now … I feel trapped.” -Librarian Shaming tumblr
  • 33. Mozilla and open source can help reverse the professional/paraprofessional divide.
  • 34. Source: Librarian-Shaming tumblr
  • 35. learning from experience… • We can use this as a test group • Collecting qualitative research from affinity groups is not easy • Organic data collection – Long term storage • Creating affinity groups within the larger community • Nurturing new volunteers and providing mentorship opportunities
  • 36. together we can reach our organizational goal of 10x this year!
